The Museum is looking for volunteers to help in its running, curator Ted Gosling tells me. If you’d like to help, ring him on 21278.
The group which runs Seaton Museum, the Axe Valley Heritage Association, has just published its latest newsletter full of interesting historical information, much of it supplied by Ted. One item caught my eye: a diary entry about an exceptional storm in February 1915: ‘mouth of the river washed away, dreadful havoc on the West Walk, asphalt all broken up and from this site of the Chine to Seaton Hole the walk is completely destroyed, nothing left but pebbles.’
You can join the AVHA (and receive the newsletter) in the Museum, in the top floor of Seaton Town Hall (to the left of the Gateway entrance) or send a cheque for £6 single or £10 per couple to Mrs C. Sargent, 32, Seaton Down Road, Seaton, EX12 2SB.
